OK, let's get started!
Open frame _1(30), duplicate and close the original.
Re-size to W-680 H-800
Then change canvas size to 800x800.
Add a layer and drag to bottom, flood fill white.

Open (2) and re-size to 800x800
copy>paste as new layer>selections>invert>delete
and drag below frame layer
Again with magic wand,
select inside white frame area,
Open _1(1) re-size 800x800 >copy>paste as
Open _(17) re-size 20%>copy>paste

and you're finished!
